Do you ever get the feeling that Tea Party Republicans see the phrase “Ignorance Is Bliss” as a Mission Statement?


Facebook owned by Republicans, Teabaggers, Wingnuts?

I am furious! Thousands protested the FB page that was a prayer for our Presidents death and FB said it would not be taken down. They said it was not breaking any rules. BUT they took down the page that had people boycotting BP? ~Mem

Now according to CNN:

iReport —

As recently as 30 minutes ago, Facebook has removed the main "Boycott BP" from it's page. With it, it leave almost 800,000 fans hanging.

This group was created with the intent of sending a clear and strong message to BP and to Washington that what has happened in the Gulf has to stop everywhere.

People from all over the world shared video clips, pictures, and frustration over what has been seen incredibly slow process to an ever growing economic and environmental disaster.

Boycott BP and it's creator, Lee Perkins, have been focused in several interviews recently, one of which was done with Diane Sawyer. To say he has made a large impact in a short amount of time is an understatement.

The question is: Why did Facebook suddenly take down the site? Some will call it a media black out of what is really happening down here in the Gulf. Some might say he was doing more harm than good given the fact that the Boycotting of BP was actually beginning to take hold if you judge by some of the photos and videos being posted of station owners either changing to a new brand, or closing altogether.

Whichever way you look at it, the voices of the people were being heard in a most unique and powerful way. We felt we were making a difference.

If we were not, then why the sudden removal of the page?

UPDATE: Lee Perkins has put a new Facebook Page here:!/pages/Boycott-bpARCO/138332356184294?v=wall&ref=mf

His Quote:
